    actually, no I have never used them. I tryed to use them for their telemarketing service....but i dont know, for some reason they didnt seem to want my money. Was sort of weird actually, I talked with the CEO, he made all sorts of claims, I said well lets get it going. Wanted to contract them for about 400-500 hours....then , i dont know, they began to blow me off??? We went with another company.

    I do know that they are a bit costly, but they are green industry specific and have many years of experience in this industry.

    I used americalist. They have some great looking mailers. You have to come up with your own copy, and then they handle the mailing lists and postage. A guy named Jimmy there did a good job for me.

    I had 30,000 post cards printed for $780.00 .
    I went from 190 accounts to 310 accounts in 3 months .
    I'm in pest and weed control only .
    They were half sheets of yellow card stock.

    The results amaze me
